Jones has a routine to deal with all the aches and pains. During the week, Jones is often limited in practice or doesn't even take the field. By the time game day rolls around, however, he's always ready to go. "He has a real process to do that," coach Dan Quinn said.

That will be the case again for Saturday's NFC divisional playoff game against the top-seeded Philadelphia Eagles. (AP Photo/John Bazemore, File)
